Summary

A heartwarming saga about war, love and duty by the best-selling author of The Street and East End Angel.

North London, 1916. When Olivia Bone and Lieutenant Lucas Black shared a passionate kiss one summer's evening, it seemed as if their love might finally have a chance to bloom.

But their brief happiness is cut short when Lucas is sent to fight on the front line, leaving Livvie uncertain if she'll ever see him again. And after a chance encounter with one of Lucas's old flames, Livvie is left doubting whether an ex-factory girl like her will ever fit into his world - and wondering if she would be better off protecting her heart.

While her friends in London busy themselves with marriage plans and dreams of babies, Livvie returns to France, throwing herself into her work as a war nurse on the Western Front. But when two German prisoners are admitted at the hospital, the dangers of war suddenly feel much closer to home - and Livvie is forced to be braver than she has ever been before....

Can Livvie and Lucas find their way to a brighter future before the war tears them apart?

Perfect for fans of Rosie Goodwin, Maureen Lee and Nadine Dorries.

Beautiful, sad and powerful Story.

The story touched me in every way.. All three books were outstanding to listen too. It was a beautiful, sad and powerful Story. Annie Alderton's voice brought each character to life.. Annie voice is just magical.
I recommend everyone to read or listen to the books. It will make you appreciate today's life.
Well done to the author of these books.
